Truck Headache Racks

Headache racks are designed to keep shifting cargo from crashing through a pickup truck cab rear window. It’s not known whether the headache would be caused by being struck in the head or the cost of the damage to the truck. We think if something unexpectedly comes hurtling through your truck cab, a headache will be the least of your worries, so why take a chance. If you haul cargo with such potential, protect yourself and your truck with a headache rack.

But protection isn’t the only thing a headache rack provides. Although features vary according to manufacturer, along with shielding your cab, most racks have angled louvers to keep out the sun and keep the cab cooler. The top tube makes it easy to carry long cargo like ladders, and many racks have mounting tabs for lights and anchor points for tie-downs. Some racks have rear lights and many can accommodate tool boxes and tonneau covers.

We aim to provide our customers with the finest Truck Headache Racks the industry can offer, which is why we accept no compromise when it comes to the quality. Created by the most reputable names in the industry, such as Dee Zee, BackRack, Ranch Hand, Aries, Go Industries, Husky, Westin, Cargo Ease, TracRac, Paramount the Truck Headache Racks we've gathered for you feature precise design and everlasting durability.


The louvers on a headache rack block the sun without obstructing your rearward vision, and this will not only thwart heat buildup in the cab but also prevent interior fading caused by UV rays. Its sturdy construction enables you to carry long cargo like ladders, pipe or lumber on top of a headache rack without damaging the roof of the cab, and some are available with rear racks the same height to create a complete ladder rack system. Headache racks designed for cargo carrying have “goalpost” end tabs to keep cargo from sliding off and many have permanent or removable hooks for attaching tie-down straps.

Our headache racks come in rugged aluminum, polished stainless steel, and sturdy mild steel that’s powder coated in black, silver, or white. Each is custom designed for the application for perfect fit and appearance, and easy installation. Mounting hardware and detailed installation instructions are included. Some racks can be installed with simple hand tools, while others will require drilling. And because we know that a headache rack isn’t the only accessory you have on your truck, we carry headache racks that can be mounted along with tool boxes and tonneau covers.

Functionality aside, a headache rack can also be a stylish addition to your truck, and there’s more than a few models that are desirable for their looks alone. You can also improve your truck’s illumination with a headache rack. Some come with red and clear lights that can be wired to work with your brake and reverse lights. Many racks come with mounting tabs for lights that can be used to illuminate the bed or for off-road lights, and accessories are available for select racks that enable emergency or service vehicle lights to be mounted.
